Ontario Trucking Association Unveils Convention App

TORONTO- Those planning to attend the Ontario Trucking Association’s (OTA) convention on Nov. 12 and 13 will have another option to know what’s going on beside the standard program booklet: a mobile app.

The mobile app replaces the printed program and provides attendees all the event information they need instantly at their fingertips, the OTA claims.

Everything about the convention can be accessed digitally, from detailed program agendas, maps, interactive navigation tools, accompanying documents, speaker and exhibitor profiles, social sharing and much more.

Features of the app include:

  • The full program agendas, schedule and room locations sorted by day and time
  • Full listing of speakers and profiles
  • Connect and exchange contact details with other attendees
  • Follow the event and share your experiences on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter (hashtag #otaconvention)
  • Find session and exhibitor locations with maps of exhibit halls and session rooms
  • Details about exhibitors and sponsors
  • Catch notifications about networking opportunities and other breaking event news pushed directly to your device
  • Information on local restaurants, bars, shopping in and around The Ritz Carlton Hotel
